Let me explain. I have mentioned before that I have been actively involved in dogs and dog sports for a long time. Over all that time I accumulated lots of photos of the dogs. Lots and lots of photos. I had stacks of them, and somehow I just knew that I would never scrapbook them. These photos were special though, like most photos are, and in many ways these photos document my life as well as the dogs. So, one day I had this great idea.
I had purchased a piece of junk dresser/desk at a fund raiser sale. With a few repairs, some black paint, and some mounted photos, I transformed it into one of my favorite things.
I started by cropping the photos. I cropped with intent, and then I mounted each photo on colored card stock. Then the real fun started when I took a handful of mounted photos and started arranging them on the dresser. I did one drawer at a time, just moving photos around until they fit in an orderly fashion.
Then I used Mod Podge to attach them to the dresser forever. It was easy, fun, and now I can see my dogs through the years all on a piece of furniture.
Here are several shots of the photos on the dresser just so you can see the variety of sizes, how I puzzled them together, and you will get a good view of my life with my dogs.
Sadly, many of the dogs displayed on this dresser have passed, but I am thankful for the time I had with each one of them, and I love my scrapbook dresser. Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed it.
